80 days. Century-old cultivar, originated with the Cherokee people. In other countries it has other name "Black Prince".
Giant size fruits (up to 5 inches diameter) have dark maroon skin with green shoulders , and mahogany flesh. Fruits are often of weird blocky irregular shape.
Taste is as unusual as it's color - very sweet flavor with hint of strawberry, dense juicy texture. This tomato is regarded by some as the best tomato ever grown. Excellent for fresh eating, salads and sandwiches.
Tolerant to colder weather when mature, vigorous and very productive tomato. Excellent for fresh eating, salads and sandwiches.
Watch for the heavy fruits dragging the branches down to the ground. Staking the plants helps very little, in addition we make a straw pad under each fruit, so that they are not touching the bare ground while ripening.
One Packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
